Hacking: Brute force attack on Instagram.
Hey, Fellow Hackers!
I saw lots of people are asking how to hack Instagram account, and in this tutorial I will show you how to get it.I use Kali Linux Distribution, a system for penetrating testing, which is popular for hacking. If you don’t have kali installed on your machine, i recommend to install. It comes with all tools required for penetration testing.
In BruteForce attack method, which the program keeps putting in the passwords until we get the right one. I know, the program puts the password over and over again, it will take a long time, it might fail, but it is better than not doing it. There is another way, By using Dictionary in brute force method. We provide a .txt file containing possible password to try.
Common length of password on internet is 8. There are 26 characters in alphabets. Considering uppercase and lowercase it becomes 52 characters. Adding numeral values to it total count becomes 52+ 10 = 62. considering special character(@,#,$,&), the count goes up by four. Totally 66 character to try.
For an 8 character password
66 to the power of 8 = 3.6004060626969*10 to the power 14 possible combinations.To try these combinations it would take 3.8 trillion minutes.This is not possible until you have super computer to try with.
Step 1 : Clone it.
So first, we will need to get the program that keeps putting in the password.
To do that, simply type :
git clone https://github.com/Ethical-H4CK3R/Instagram.git.
Above command will clone the program to your computer.Now you need to chmod the file and go to the directory of the program, so type :
chmod -R 755 Instagram && cd Instagram
Step 2: Executing the program
Well, we know there are three things inside the folder, “Core”, “README.md” and “instagram.py”.The executable program here is “instagram.py”.We need to execute the program now, by typing :
It wont do anything as of now and will throw an error, It is because we do not have the txt file.
Remember, this is a BruteForce Dictionary attack, we need to give it a lists of passwords so the program knows which password it should put in.
Step 3: Get the passwords
If you are just trying to test either this works or not, then you guys can make your own password list and just type your own passwords there, but I am trying to legit get the password of my friend’s account.
Now, let’s get the txt file.
Go to the browser, and search “ Daniel Miessler passwords Github”.
Search it, go in the first link.
Now you will be in GitHub. Go in Passwords.
Choose one txt file, I will choose the 10 million password list.
The bigger the better, because you will have a higher chance of succeeding.
But, it will take up a lot of space…
It will say : “Sorry, file too large, you can view as raw”,something like that, and click on “view raw”.And there will be a list of passwords.To save them in your computer, right click it, click Save Page as, then save the text file in the Instagram folder. Now we can execute it!
Step 4: Final Step
We just got the text file, so we can keep on hacking! Lets do the thing we did :
open the terminal, type :
Now we are in the Instagram directory, type “ls” to see what is inside the folder.
Yes, there is the text file in the folder! lets execute the program by :
python3 instagram.py Username Thetextfile.txt
Now we are at the end! The BruteForce attack has started, it will say the attempts and what password it is currently trying.
Well, It would take a long time.
So, did it work for you guys? It worked for me, comment down below whether it worked or not.
Pro : It is easy to use, lots of beginners can use it
Con : It is a BruteForce attack, there are also a chance of failing
